Sal V. I love making an intimidating subject approachable to students. I've received feedback that I make students feel more comfortable and confident about learning math.

I really enjoyed this time, and, while my kids still occasionally ask for help (such as my younger son who is now in Calculus BC), it is not as much as before and there is no opportunity to help in the classroom. I found I really miss it.
